AVANZA 18-35 Young Adult Latinx Leadership Program
AVANZA is a leadership development and community organizing program for Latinx young adults, ages 18-35. The program brings together a diverse, supportive group and empowers participants to be agents of social justice. This is the only leadership program in Portland for Latinx young adults that is also free of charge for participants. AVANZA is directed by and for participants with the support of staff, community collaborators, and volunteer presenters. For a weekend, 10-15 participants will meet to hear from leaders in the community, gain leadership and personal development skills, and collaborate with each other on a culminating community project. Discussion topics include: communication, goal setting, issue choosing, teamwork, community organizing, culture and oppression, ethics, and values. The project gives participants the chance to learn through experience by using their skills collectively to create systemic change on critical issues facing their communities, while emphasizing coalition-building with other organizations.

What Our Clients Are Saying
"EducateYa is a wonderful community place where I had the privilege to teach English to Spanish speakers in Portland. My students came from Hillsboro and drove all the way into town because the methods EducateYa used are so successful. The management at EducateYa, including Rafael Arellano-Barrera are encouraging to all teachers and students to learn, experiment and grow. I highly recommend EducateYa for its mission statement and principles to make everyone in the U.S. bilingual. Yes!" Nana Nash
